Rabbi to present lecture
Rabbi Chaim Gruber of New York City, now in Fairfield, will present a lecture from 7:10-8 p.m. and again from 8:10-9 p.m. Tuesday at the Fairfield Public Library.
Gruber, ultra-Orthodox ordained on Mount Zion, Jerusalem, will speak about the Judeo-Christian perspective of “Does God want us to eat meat?”
According to Gruber, the Bible’s permission to eat meat comes after the great flood. Adam, Eve, and thereby mankind were at first vegetarians. He asks, “this considered, is this meat-eating permission merely a lesser of two evils measure? Meaning, did mankind have to then resort to eating meat because the after-the-flood extinction of many types of vegetative species made eating meat necessary for survival?”
